Supervision of fieldwork concerning drug abuse in Benghazi, Libya - Fayek Elkhwsky

Dr. Fayek Elkhwsky, Professor of Medical Statistics and Family and Community Medicine at Benghazi University in Libya, supervises 3 Libyan Internists after finalizing their post-graduate fieldwork concerning drug abuse in Benghazi. Despite the difficult situation in Benghazi, the students were able to perform valuable and significant research.

The most striking research findings include, an increased percentage of teens among drug abusers, the use of more than one drug by drug users, and the identification that psychological stress was the most frequent trigger. Many more interesting findings are available upon request.
